Federal Manager's Daily Report

In a nomination that reflects the GSA’s emphasis on greater use of technology by federal agencies, President Biden had nominated to head that agency Robin Carnahan, who over 2016-2020 led the state and local government practice at 18F, a tech consultancy inside the GSA.

In that role, she “helped federal, state and local government agencies improve customer facing digital services and cut costs. In particular, she taught and empowered non-technical executives about how to reduce risk and deliver better results for the public by more effectively budgeting, procuring, implementing and overseeing digital modernization projects,” according to a White House announcement.

She formerly was secretary of state for Missouri, where she also advocated for technology modernization efforts, and currently is a fellow at Georgetown University where she co-founded a software collaborative, it said.
